NAHBS in the MSM

John Caletti road bicycle

The North American Handmade Bicycle Show 2013 begins Friday in Denver, Colorado. Cyclelcious will be there to shoot photos and talk to the builders.

It occurs to me that NAHBS is the perfect opportunity for local builders to get word of their craft out to people outside of the endemic cycling media. You all really should send a press release to your local media to let them know what you do. You have a compelling story that people outside of the small world of bike nerds would like to know about.


Colorado Supreme Court overturns Black Hawk bike ban

You might recall the city of Black Hawk, Colorado, which banned bikes from the state highway that runs through town.

A trio of touring cyclists were ticketed on June 4, 2010 for violating the ordinance. Local and district courts affirmed the citations, so Jamie Webb, Jeffrey Hermanson, and Michaleen Jeronimus took it to the Colorado Supreme Court, which reversed the district court decision by deciding that local law which contradicts state is pre-empted.

Bike ban hearings at Colorado Supreme Court

Colorado cycling advocates seek to overturn cycling ban in Black Hawk.

The gambling town of Black Hawk, CO banned bikes in January 2010. A trio of cyclists rode through town on purpose to test the law. Nearly three years later, the Colorado Supreme Court began hearing arguments on Thursday on the gambling town’s bike ban.
